The Return of the Ultra-High Relief New Year Celebration Panda for 2023
Chinese New Year is the most important holiday celebrated in China and dates back to ancient times. Beginning January 21 and held for several weeks, it marks the end of winter and the beginning of Spring and is a time for families and friends to come together for several nights of reunions, food, gifts and celebration.

In 2020, the New Year brought a brand-new series of Ultra-High Relief (UHR) Proofs tied to the beginning of the new Chinese Lunar Calendar cycle, commemorating the Chinese New Year celebration. The release of the first New Year Celebration Pandas was a smash success, completely selling out in just two days! That initial release, with its handsome designs tying into the Chinese New Year, whetted the appetites of collectors around the world who anticipated, then quickly snatched up, the New Year Celebration Pandas released the following two years.

New One-Year-Only Design for 2023
Now in 2023, the New Year Celebration Panda is back, with a brand new, one-year-only spectacular reverse that combines three of China’s most revered symbols—the Panda bear, a Dragon Dancer and the Fu image—on a special collectible issued for this important holiday. Each year, the Fu symbol on a table is prevalent during the celebration (typically hung on doors or walls) and symbolizes peace and prosperity in the New Year, the dragon dancer is often seen as part of Chinese New Year festivities, and the mature Panda is reminiscent of the first China Panda coin issued in 1982. The obverse displays the Temple of Heaven, in exquisite detail.


Ultra-High Relief Makes These Stand Out
Both sides of these Proofs were struck in Ultra High Relief, so all of the rich detail from each image seems to jump off the surface. The Panda/Dragon side also features a unique concave (bowl-shaped) surface that further enhances and accentuates the Ultra-High Relief details. 

 



Large Sizes in 99.9% Gold and Silver
The UHR design has even more impact courtesy of the large, impressive diameters of these Proofs. You have your choice of four different sizes struck in Gold and Silver:

• 888-gram Gold Proof (80 mm or over 3 inches in diameter)

• 88-gram Gold Proof (38 mm in diameter)

• 888-gram Silver Proof (100 mm or almost 4 inches in diameter)

• 88-gram Silver Proof (45 mm in diameter)

No matter which you choose, you’re getting an amazing China New Year Celebration Panda struck in 99.9% fineness, with a highly limited worldwide mintage.

 

Collectors Crave the Best Quality
And the best quality is what you get here. Each of these 2023 China New Year Celebration Pandas here is certified in perfect Proof-70 (PF70) condition by Numismatic Guaranty Company (NGC), one of the top third-party coin-grading services in the world. There is no higher grade. Each Proof has also been awarded the most-desired designation of First Day of Issue. Designations are additional attributes of a proof that can increase its collector desirability—and the designation collectors want most is First Day of Issue, which means the proofs were received for grading within 24 hours of the official mint release.

 

Tiny (But Lucky) Mintages
The mintages of each of the New Year Celebration Panda Proofs you have here are extremely small, especially when compared to Proof releases in the China Mint’s annual gold and silver Panda series. Just eight (8!) of the 2023 888-Gram Gold Proofs were minted. Just 88 of the 88-Gram Gold Proofs were minted. Just 188 of the 888-Gram Silver Proofs were minted. And just 888 of the 88-Gram Silver Proofs were minted. 

 

Plus, you may know that the number 8 is considered lucky in Chinese culture, especially around the New Year, which makes these mintages lucky. In fact, these Proofs could be considered “double-lucky” because, as you may have noticed, in addition to the mintages, each of the weights is comprised of “8s.”
